Pseudo-Futurist Video Game Improvisation Extravaganza

posted at 17:00 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid

Generally, I hate Second Life art, but I love the 01s, so here ya go…

Eva and Franco Mattes aka 0100101110101101.ORG
Pseudo-Futurist Video Game Improvisation Extravaganza
Live in Second Life
Monday Nov. 16, 5-6pm (EST time); 2-3pm (Second Life time)

Synthetic Performances are online live gaming sessions inside the virtual world of Second Life, performed by Eva and Franco Mattes through their avatars, which were constructed from their bodies and faces. The series arose out of the artists’ polemical stance toward performance art. This lead the Mattes on the one hand to breach the classic rules of performance, and on the other to present these works - the efficacy of which was based on the radical way they explored the issues of the body, violence, sexuality, identity and public space - in a context where these issues acquire completely different, paradoxical meanings.

Anyone can participate from all over the world by clicking the link above. If you don’t have a Second Life account you can sign up for free.
